With a LedLenser on hand, you will never fear the darkness again. Extend your play, work, training and exploring, well into the night.
Many revolutionary products first saw the light of day in a garage. Such was the case of the first Ledlenser. When Harald and Rainer Opolka founded the company Ledlenser in 1993, they really didn’t have much more than a garage, an old Atari computer, a set of tools, a drawing pad and around 1,000 Deutschmarks of seed capital. But that didn’t stop them from turning many a night into day with their flashes of genius, working hard and dreaming of great success during a few hours’ sleep.
A dream that would soon become reality: Nowadays the former garage company is an international flashlight and headlamp producer, unmatched on a worldwide scale. With over 1,500 employees we share the aim of getting a little better every day – and indeed in everything we do. We are therefore continually extending our product and accessories range, scrutinizing even tried and tested ideas, and increasingly relying on sustainable energy sources. At the same time, responsibility is far more important to us than shareholder value. That’s why we prefer to invest profits in training programs and company housing for employees in China, to get involved in social projects, and to foster ecological practices.
Light from the sun takes more than eight minutes to reach the earth. We only need to press a button.
We create light. Even in the furthest, darkest corner of the world. As one of the world’s market leaders in LED flashlights and headlamps, we are downright obsessed with it. And while some believe that we already make the best lights in the world, we think we’re only at the beginning of our journey. Because there is always an idea which is better than the good idea that somebody just had, and because even the best quality can be improved. We already have over 100 patents for our innovative ideas. But this is just the beginning.
What we value the most and what we let guide us is our customers’ enthusiasm. Our quality, our products and our service should create a “wow” factor. We achieve this the best when we create an atmosphere in our company that brings us all forward. We challenge each other and support our employees in their development to enable them to exploit their full potential.
In everything we do we act responsibly and reliably. Both towards the environment and towards people. In production we are careful to respect ecologically sound and sustainable practices. The long battery life of our lights and the option to replace faulty parts also help protect resources. We fulfill our responsibility to people by, for example, building company housing, and through involvement in social projects.
We are indeed already big, but we want to become the number one worldwide producer of portable light. How we aim to do that? With quality “Engineered in Germany”. For us that means: We set ourselves the highest standards in terms of innovation materials, technology, workmanship, design and sustainability. And because we ourselves believe in the quality of our products, we also offer seven years warranty, upon successful online registration.
In addition to that, we work tirelessly to further develop our technological edge – from superior lenses to smart batteries. We currently have over 100 patents. But we already have an eye on the next 100. And to allow our innovations to bring light to the darkest corners of the world, we are expanding our global distribution system. We are sure: This is how we are turning from an ideas pioneer into a market leader.
My SEO7R goes with me on mountaineering expeditions. Its lightweight compactness is perfect for dark nights around the camps and long pre-dawn summit attempts. The H7R.2 was my companion on overnight ultra in the trails, until the MH10 came along with twice the lumens and a better fit. It is like a flood light on the go, giving me a better perception of my surroundings and greater confidence running through the night(s).
Adventure racing sometimes means racing in absolute darkness, early mornings, or nightfall. We rely on bright lights to keep us awake and moving until the sun comes back up. We put our gear through the wringer, because we know searching for a checkpoint in the jungle at 3am is hard enough as it is. We race with the MH10 for a dependable, bright and long burning headlamp, and the XEO19R on the mountain bikes for when you need the single tracks to be as bright as day.
